Reviewed 6 April 2018

Ma Anandamayee Ashram is located in Kankhal area around 5 km from Hari Ki Pauri and is dedicated to Sri Anandamayee whose remains are kept here. It has been recently beautified with white marble temple which gives it a beautiful look. There are different areas in the ashram like Museum, Shankaracharya Hall, Vidyapeeth and the Ashram Office.

Regular prayers and pujas are organized here throughout the year and people find spiritual calm while visiting this ashram. The Vidyapeeth supports the food and education of orphaned and extremely poor children. The ashram runs on the charity done by the different devotees from all around the world.

There are multiple dormitories and rooms available who want extended stay here. Except for the main temple, cleanliness is an issue which can be found in all other ashrams and temples in India. Overall a nice place to spend some time away from the maddening and fast life we are leading.

The Ashram is well laid and planned in such a way that any visitor feels good by being there. The environment is silent and gives a inner peace feeling.

Anandamayi Ma's samadhi temple is lovely and peaceful. One can stay and meditate as long as one wishes during it's open hours, which is most of day. Visitors come and go. Although some do not respect the silence of the place, they are usually gone quickly. I wrote for permission to stay at Anandamayi Ma International Centre for three days. On arriving there and seeing my room I confess I broke down in tears of happiness. I'd been having a difficult time for the past ten days after having twisted my knee and sprained my ankle on a trek to Vasudhara Falls, then trying to survive the fierce heat, pollution and crowds of thousands at the end of Dussehra in Rishikesh. The room and bath at Ma's Centre were so nicely outfitted! Everything was pristinely clean and in good repair; towels, bedding, bath rug, etc. From every wall, pictures of Ma offered comfort and inspiration. It was nicer than any of the so-called 5 star hotels I'd stayed at; never-mind some of the threadbare ashrams. The food that the cook went to market for in the morning was delicious and ample. It was sattvic and prepared with love. The staff at the centre and the people who managed the two small shops by Ma's samadhi emulated a genuine spirit of care. A few minutes away was a nice ghat where I went every day and soaked my injuries in the healing waters of Mother Ganga. So grateful to have experienced this unassuming, yet love-permeated place.
